Playing Texas Hold’em

Texas Hold’em gained popularity after networks like ESPN began televising the game.  As they watched, home viewers began to like the game and realize that it wasn’t that difficult.  They also saw that it was fun!

Each player is dealt two cards face down after adding money to the pot (“the bet”).  As “the bet” makes its way around the table, other players will also add money.  When it is back to you, you must put in enough money to match the highest bet or you may get out.  If you choose to put more than the highest bet, then you are making a “raise” and anyone else who wants to stay in must match your raise.  At any point, you can get out or “quit” by “folding”.

Once the players staying in, have decided to match the bets and raises, the dealer puts three cards in the middle of the table, face up.  These are “community” cards, and all players at the table are able to use these cards to attempt to create a winning hand.

For example, if you had a King in your hand, and you see a King in the community cards, you could pick up the card and would now have a pair of Kings.

After that, another round of betting begins, just like the first round.  If everyone else but you “folds”, then you win the pot.  Otherwise, everyone matches the bet and raises and proceeds.

Two more community cards are placed one at a time.  If at least two of the players are still in the game, then the remaining players must show their cards.  The player with the best hand wins the pot.
